What is flexible packaging?

Flexible packaging is made from non-rigid materials, which can tightly wrap around products. This minimizes space and weight. For this reason, it is highly efficient and sustainable packaging. Fewer materials are required and the size of the packaging is relatively smaller. This translates to a smaller footprint on your supply chain, distribution network and the environment. Flexible packaging includes doypacks (also known as stand up pouches), sachets and heat-sealed bags.

What type of materials are used?

Flexible packaging is designed to extend the shelf life of your goods due to the sealing methods and high quality materials used. They can be made from all types of packaging materials, which protect against UV radiation, oxidation and humidity. They include paper (e.g., kraft paper), BOPP film, aluminium (ALU), standard PE (Polyethylene) plastic, PP (Polypropylene) and PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) thermoplastic, along with bio-based films like Nativia (NTSS) and NatureFlex cellulose film. They can be combined to make one multi-layered material. For example, a kraft paper exterior surface can be matched with a  PET or aluminium lining to make the packaging food safe and maximise the shelf life.

What is it used for?

Flexible packaging has become increasingly popular among a number of industries. It is a favourite among tea and coffee brands. It is also great for:

  • Health & beauty: scrubs, shampoo, lotions, liquid soap and other cosmetics. Perfect for refills.
  • Supplements: vitamins, oil capsules, protein powder and more.
  • Food & drink: fruits, nuts, cereals, dairy, herbs, spices, cured meat, smoothies, juices and even frozen food.
  • Pet food: dry and wet food.

How are they sealed and opened?

There are many ways to seal and open these pouches and bags, including screw caps, zip-lock, heat-sealing or a mix of them all.
